Senior veep Cohen exits WB Records

25-year vet's departure latest in management shakeup

NEW YORK — Stu Cohen, senior VP of promotions and a 25-year veteran of Warner Bros. Records, ankled the label late Tuesday.

The move is the latest shakeup in the executive suites orchestrated by Phil Quartararo, president and CEO of Warner Bros. Inc., the umbrella for the Warners Bros. and Reprise labels.

Sources said Cohen decided to move on when it became clear there was no role for him in the new regime.

A replacement for Cohen, who was brought to the label by Mo Ostin and Lenny Waronker, has not been named. In the interim, the promotion staff will report to Andy Schuon, senior VP and G.M. of the label. Cohen was made senior veepee in 1994.

Last week Steven Baker, who was president of Warner Bros. Records, ankled after a 24-year career. Shortly after Quartararo’s arrival, Baker had been reassigned to a predominantly A&R capacity with Quartararo assuming many of Baker’s day-to-day duties.
